TravisH3 runs one and loves it. I actually need to order some stuff from him sooner than later to reposition my tracbar after going with another company and having offset the axle due to them not providing the spacers that Newton does.

In the end, bang for the buck, Newton is a no brainer, quality stuff and done correct.

You just need to measure the rake of your truck to figure out. Most stock f250's are pretty close to being "level" as is. So if your front end is 1" lower then the back, you need a 1" leveling kit.

If you are already level, and want to lift it slightly, you need to get a block for the rear that is bigger then the stock one, to match how much lift you are putting in the front.

Remember you need an adjustable trac bar, alighnment cams/shims, and new shocks if you are going to go any bigger then 2"

Not a 6.4L, but I'm running a Netwon front level kit without issues. They seem to be a decent company.

Not to derail by I'm looking to level and slightly lift. What do I need to measure to find the rake? And a leveling kit just levels out after the lift right? I'm Dick height but want to run 35's. What do I need to get to fit 35's and not skimp on anything like Trac bars and what not.

A leveling kit is usually lifting the front only.

Most people measure rake by the distance between the tires and fenders.

Whats dick height?

If you want to run 35's. I would say go with a 2 1/2" leveling kit and 4 1/2" rear blocks to make it sit level. Mines a F350 so to keep it a little higher in the back I went with 5 1/2" blocks with traction bars. I got every thing from Newton's. Great price and excellent quality.
